Inventory of Estate dated 29 August 1730
When her mother, Jacquemine du Pree died, the children were farmed
out by their guardians, the Cape Weemeesters to 'honourable people of
good name and repute'. Elisabeth herself went to live with her Uncle
and Aunt, Jacques Theron and Maria Jeanne du Pree.

But from the report submitted by Weesmeesters to the Governor of the
Cape in Council in November 1716, it seems that not only had Elisabeth
been seduced in 1714 at the home of her grandmother, Cecilia Datis, by
her cousin's husband, Charles du Plessis who had trapped her on that
in the wine cellar, but in her new home with her uncle, in February 1716
she had again been persuaded by the same man, again in the wine cellar,
and she had, as a consequence, become pregnant.

Her daughter, Elisabeth du Plessis, was born in November 1716. Charles
du Plessis was orderd to pay f.20 for expenses and f.4 per month for the
support of the child.

Her children are given here as listed in her inventory of August 1730.

These children shared their deceased mother's portion of the Estate
of their uncle, Isack Vivie, in December 1732, and the four van Wijck
children are all mentioned again in October 1740 when their step-
mother, Maria Provo, married again.
